Tommy Bolan of N.Y.C Relies On DigiTech® for 2009 Zyko Tour

Guitarist Tommy Bolan and his band N.Y.C took the metal world by storm with the release of their acclaimed metal album Zyko in 2008. This year, the band hit the tour circuit in support of their new album with shows in 24 cities, and Bolan had DigiTech with him the entire way.

“The gear is beyond reliable, which is extremely important especially when we were on a serious tour like this,? stated Bolan. “It also has a way of sparking creativity for me as a musician. There is such a broad range of sounds and textures available with DigiTech products, especially with the new RP1000. The DigiTech gear I use has always held up and the guys who make the equipment will always stand behind their product.?

Bolan already has a long list of musician accomplishments precedes him. First as the lead guitarist for the band Warlock, followed by a stint as the lead guitarist for Freight Train Jane, his albums have sold over two million copies worldwide.

“Right now I’m using the Whammy™ pedal and it’s a must-have product because there are endless creative options, and I’m always using it both live and in the studio,? continued Bolan. “Plus I love that it inspires some wicked riffs.? The Whammy’s legendary ability to pitch shift and control sound has become a staple of DigiTech over the last 20 years.

The other DigiTech gear Tommy won’t go without is the Vocal 300. This affordable vocal effects processor includes a built-in expression pedal. It features 38 fully programmable studio quality effects and the built-in expression pedal can be assigned to control your choice of up to three parameters in real-time. “Whenever I’m playing or singing live I’m using it on my voice,? added Bolan.

2010 is shaping up to be just as busy a year for Bolan as well. “I’ll be back out on tour and we’ll be working on a new CD too. There will be additional clinics planned and of course some other surprises as well!? stated Bolan.

In addition to being an acclaimed artist Bolan takes pride in his ability to share his craft with others. He currently has an instructional DVD called “Metal Primer? which features the DigiTech Vocal 300 and the Whammy.
